The FA have confirmed the four match suspension of midfielder Matt Worthington following his red card at King’s Lynn Town on Saturday.

It has been listed as ‘Serious Foul Play’.

The reason for the additional match ban on top of the usual three is that this represents the midfielder’s second dismissal of the season, the other being on the opening day against… King’s Lynn.

After the game, Charlie Lee suggested an appeal may be on the cards saying: “ I think everyone (thought it was not a red card), I spoke to their bench and you understand their reaction, it was one of those tackles, I think everyone saw he won the ball.

“I don’t know really what to say, it’s not a red card, everyone makes mistakes, we will look back at it and I’ll have to see the video, my first thought is that it’s a great tackle.”

As it stands, Worthington is set to miss games against Aldershot Town on the Good Friday, the derby at W*ymouth on Easter Monday and then the matches with promotion-chasing Stockport County and FC Halifax Town.

He would be available for the home game against Wealdstone on May 2nd.
